We have just returned from a 3 night stay in the Hotel Sultania. It has a great location and really is a 10 minute walk from all the main sites and 15 from the main bazaars.The welcome was very warm. Serap who checked us in was full of useful information and explained how together about. The breakfast was of a high standard. We did not have enough time to use the spa but it looked nice and again the staff were helpful. The room had every thing we needed except a view as we booked late and got a dark first floor room. It was comfortable and very clean so was fine as we were out so much. We would definitely go there again and would recommend it very highly

Stayed: March 2014

The location of this hotel is perfect,in walking distance of all attractions in the old city.Each room has a character of its very own.Cosy,very cosy hotel.The staff are attentive and very curteous.We had only breakfast in the hotel which was more than acceptable.

Room Tip: Try to stay in the high floors for a bit of peace and a better view.

Stay with friends. Friendly, helpful, and resourseful. Feels like friends. Close to the sights of "Old Istanbul" and the Blue Mosque and the Haga Sophia, and great places to eat and drink. Walk out and you are in the heart of Turkish life. Safe, nice rooms (get one on the top floor), and wonderful breakfast buffet. Five Stars!

In every aspect, this was an amazing hotel.
One of the warmest welcomes we have come across in over 20 years of travelling.
Room was in a traditional ottoman style. Bathroom was slightly odd, however you get used to the format.
Breakfast was delicious especially the omelettes, variety of food and the service was amazing.
We enjoyed the apples, walnuts, hazelnuts and the apple/mint/lemon water for guests in reception.
Afternoon tea was also provided and always excellent.
The location of the hotel is perfect. We walked up to the Hagia Sofia and the Blue Mosque every evening. The Spice Market and Bosphorus are also walking distance.
Lots of interesting places to eat particularly Kitchen Blue which is around the corner from the hotel.
In conclusion, we enjoyed our stay and would happily return here and bring friends and family.

We booked direct with the hotel and got a fantastic deal for an 4 night stay. The taxi transfere from the airport worked perfectly , the driver was waiting for us as agreed.
Checking was smooth and there we arranged the trips and meal at the Oliv resturant .
The hotel is extremly well placed in the heart of the old town, and it was so easy to move around as a tourist from Sultania. It also felt very safe.
Right out the hotel there are several resturants, on our last night we ate at Pasazade. It was excellent ! Having said that so was the Oliv resturant at the hotel, here we had the best Meze of all we ate in Istanbul, and great choice of wines !
Being so well located this is an excellent choice for your trip to Istanbul , the tram stop is just down the road as is the New Metro over to the Asia side, it took just 4 mins and cost 3lir each way, well worth the trip and then take an hours Cruise for 10 lir - extremly cheap !
We had a delux double on the 4th floor, it was well equiped and a very comfortable bed. Breakfast is server until 11, great for tired tourists and they serve a wonderful spread, even eggs to order and different coffees.
We used the pool, it was warmed to 27 degrees , great after a hard day walking around.
We can without doupt reccomend this lovely hotel.

We stayed at this hotel after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor and it lived up to our expectations.
Location:
The hotel was within a 10 min walk of most of the key sights on the old side of Istanbul. There were plenty of places to eat nearby with particular mention to the place next door....think it was called Pazadena?

Hotel:
The hotel itself has good facilities with a small pool and a small gym. I didn't try the spa but compared to prices elsewhere it looked a bit pricey. We stayed in two rooms during our time there both were nicely decorated, reasonably sized and well looked after. The only niggle that we had was the sound proofing. In the first room we stayed in there was a family next door with a child who cried a lot. As we were on a weekend away from our own children we asked if we could change rooms and this was seen to almost immediately. The food at breakfast was great and very tasty.

Service:
All the staff couldn't have been better. Anything we asked for or looked for help with was always answered with a smile. They really did seem to go out of their way to make your stay special.

A would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Go for the rooms hirer up.

We stayed here after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. Located right in the centre of all the attractions with only 10 minutes walk to most places. The staff were all extremely helpful and friendly, clean nice rooms and a great view from the lovely roof top restaurant. Would stay again. The spa downstairs was a little oasis where we had a massage by a great guy called Mehmet-I would advise everyone to give one a try he did my husbands back no end of good! Overall an excellent value for money hotel.
